Gosh Chaps Were Going To Crash

Great video here CLICKY of the Extreme 40s at Cowes.

It all goes wrong for Groupama when their steering is damaged and the crew can only bail out before the crash.

The French skipper is amazingly matter of fact afterwards.

Yes, great video - thanks.

I think the expression over there might be, "It all goes pear-shaped for Groupama . . . "?

Thanks for posting. Great video.

You heard the broadcaster call to Franck Cammmas the fastest man on the planet? It looks that I am not the only one that thinks he is the best!

He is very good on match racing, he is very good on solo racing, he is very good on multihulls, very good on monohulls and was the skipper of the boat that has the world record speed for a circumnavigation...and it is almost a kid

That's my favorite skipper for the Volvo Race...

Regards

Paulo

The car is just a big fender. Not a bad idea
